Love Mail!!

Hello everyone and Happy New Year to you all!  Did you have a fabulous holiday?  I sure did--I took some much needed time off to just read, chill, and be with my family.  Lot's of jammie days, hee hee , movies and games!  I haven't crafted one thing since Christmas Eve day so it definitely refreshed my mojo :o)  I got my NEW Kindle from Santa hubby for Xmas and I LOVE it!!  I've read 9 books on it so far, and it's so much fun to just find the book I want, download it in less than 20 seconds and start reading right away!  It was a really great Christmas---my son got a new laptop and lots of Star Wars toys & video games and my daughter got a new cell phone (w/ touch screen), a Wacom tablet for her laptop and her own printer (so she doesn't use up my ink) and best of all we spent it all together celebrating!  We had family game night with lots of yummy goodies to celebrate the New Year in--it's been so blastin' cold here that we stayed warm by just staying in!!  I'll have some pictures up for you tomorrow to share--I have 2 of my trees packed up, now 8 more to go (sigh)!  The house always looks so bare after all the decorations are put away, it's kinda sad :o(

I wish you all a beautiful, blessed & fabulous New Year as well---here's to a great one!


-Susana's Custom Art & Card Design has re-opened after taking a break over the holidays & she has new goodies in stock!!  New Prima Roses (in multi-packs that are fabulous & only $3), a new Copic Bundle in "GOLD" colors by lil' ole me, and NEW Kaisercraft paper packs and Basic Grey paper pads!!

-Tomorrow I will have a new Copic video up showing how to color "GOLD" on your images to go along with the new Copic Bundle I put together!  It's been awhile since I've done a video so we'll see how I do, hee hee!

Love Mail

I have to say it's refreshing to create for a new holiday using new colors, lol--I was Christmas project'ed out!!  Today I'm using a fabulous new Lockhart Stamp Co. image called "Mailbox of Love"--it's from the new collection that is out right now and you can see them all HERE! I adore this image--so fun to use and there are a lot of fun stamps in the new Lockhart collection I tell ya--you'll wanna snatch them all up!
I paired it up with some fabulous Basic Grey "Nook & Pantry" papers--I love brown and pink together!  Pretty simple card construction, lots of layers and some CB embossing along with some matching PTI buttons.

The image was colored with Copics and then the mailbox got a nice coat of diamond glaze to make it shiny!  I finished it off with some pink twill tied at the top with a cute heart button on top!  Perfect for the upcoming Valentine's Day or someone sweet in your life!  (Copic Colors used: E27,E25,E53/R22,R21,R20)

That's it for me today--I have lots of projects to get done--this is a super busy month & I have lots to share with you all!  Stop by tomorrow for a new project and then tomorrow night I will be participating in Gina K's preview Blog Hop which will go live on my blog tomorrow at 11 pm EST!!
